Cobham Wins Aegis Waveguide Order

Cobham was recently awarded a contract valued at more than $10M for multiple waveguide components and assemblies to support production of Lockheed Martin's AN/SPY-1D three-dimensional fixed-phased array radar. AN/SPY-1D is the primary air search radar on the Aegis Combat System, providing targeting and tracking data in the most demanding environments. Work under the contract will be performed by the Exeter, New Hampshire site of Cobham Integrated Electronic Solutions, a business unit of the Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions sector.

"We are proud to continue our longstanding support to the Navy and Lockheed Martin on this leading maritime radar system and its Asia-Pacific expansion," said Jeff Hassannia, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Technology for Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions. "Manufactured under stringent ISO9001:2008 and AS9100 standards, Cobham offers customizable solutions that integrate passive and active microwave and coaxial components, allowing the development and production of complete modular transmit/receive devices. Our track record of quality and support enables the continuation of our longstanding partnership," continued Hassannia.

The AN/SPY-1D is an S-band multi-function phased array US naval radar system manufactured by Lockheed Martin and comprises a key component of the Aegis Combat System. The system can automatically track multiple targets simultaneously while maintaining continuous surveillance of the sky, from the wave tops to the stratosphere.
